Tayo is more than just your typical 19 year old from Long Island with a backpack full of raps. Born Matthew Rivera in the Kings County borough of New York, Brooklyn! He is quite possibly the best lyricist since the late great Big Pun…Need I say more…? Of course… he’s young, fresh, blessed, and Puerto Rican. Tayo is unique, committed, and versatile. If there were a recipe that could describe his skill level, it would likely read as follows: “Chop one Canadian Drake, add Canadian and one (1) pound ground Eminem to a ten (10) inch skillet, cook until lightly browned. Drain the drippings. Add one tenth (1/10) ounce can of Bruno Mars soup. Two (2) tablespoons of packed Bobby Ray, and one (1) teaspoon of Mark Anthony. Stir thoroughly, cover, and simmer over low heat for 19 years, and then serve HOT!!!” “(Refrigerate leftovers immediately in tightly covered containers because the aroma could cause an infectious reaction)” The music speaks for itself. Tayo is the future and has been entertaining since elementary school. He recently won a New York (Hot 97) radio showcase with a seasoned performance. Tayo is charismatic, passionate, and speaks to people with his music on many levels. While confident, he is humble, and that balance flourishes in his music. Tayo has an incredible work ethic and lives in the studio tinkering words and rhythms. This is where he finds himself, and merges with his soul, to create magic. With this interaction came his alter ego “Studio Geek”. Currently, Tayo is working his talent virally and doing live club performances in New York, and along the east coast. Tayo loves to perform and does so any time the opportunity avails. He takes his craft seriously and rehearses whenever time allows. His music plays on the evening mixshows at Hot 97, and he has a mixtape online hosted by DJ Kay Slay. Tayo is currently prepping an EP and a mixtape album that will mark his intro to the future. Tayo knows nothing worthwhile comes without hard labor, and that it takes time. He believes his time has come, and continues to “geek” it up in the studio with lyrical visions of his future!
